    I've sat in a LOT of seats at Kenny's, and older Grand Prix (Grand AM?) seats were my favorite that would fit in the narrow Zuk. There is a retailer in the US selling rebranded Town And Country seats for Samis, which are really neat because they are narrow and fold forward completely flat...but not much for side support, which is what I need.

    I'm on a mission to make the Zuk more comfortable because it's killing my back and shoulders, and the lack of comfort is making me look for something else, which is not really an option. I'm going on another seat hunt after the steeringis done...maybe try late Neon seats next.

    On the monthly run through Bump & Grind, I finally got tired of the 'Strong Arm' steering. So, time to install the Tracker power steering that's been sat on the bench 😉 Used most of the parts previously removed from the Yellow Sami that had a Tracker setup with a Chevy pump. Used a Tracker pump, so had to make an extension bracket to move the pump from it's 'yellow circled' location up and away from the steering shaft. Having a spare engine to use for the template and measurements was a huge help.

    The Ford

    Sad to see the Ford retired, but that's a worthy replacement 🙂

    Coffee this week is Thursday 7pm at the Burnside Tim Hortons - 15 Akerley Blvd, Dartmouth, NS B3B 1J6 Rolling schedule; .Burnside Tim Hortons - 15 Akerley Blvd, Dartmouth, NS B3B 1J6 .Bayers Lake Tim Hortons - 5 Lakelands Blvd, Halifax, NS B3K 5L2 .Bedford Common Tim Hortons - 36 Verdi Dr, Bedford, NS B4A 0C2 .Fall River (winter) / Woodside (summer) .Middle Sackville Tim Hortons - 1624 Sackville Dr, Middle Sackville, NS B4E 3A8
  6. This months club run will be Bump & Grind. DEPART - from Tims at Bayer's Lake opposite Halifax Chrysler at 10am PREREQUISITES - Have enough fuel, food and water for the whole day. All vehicles should have proper front and rear recovery points. Rigs without will be turned away. APPROX TOTAL TIME - Plan for a full, fun packed day! FULL SIZE DO-ABLE - YES TRAIL NOTES - It's called Bump & Grind for a reason, and is a personal favorite of many Backcountry members. The trail is in 2 sections; a regular trail with a mix of mud, bush, hill climbs, side trails and giant rocks for crawling on, followed by a challenging rocky section with plenty of opportunity to Bump & Grind 😉 For folks who don't want to tackle the last rocky section, there is a place to park and hop in with somebody else. There is no trail exit - we turn around at the end of the trail and run back the trail back to the entrance. IMPORTANT INFO We have to traverse a maintained walking/cycle path in order to access the trail head. To help avoid damage, complaints against the club and ultimately trail access closure, please tread lightly and respect the integrity of the entrance and the walking path. Also, the end of the trail is designated as Wilderness, so no rigs will be allowed to continue past the turnaround.

    Previously bought a replacement door mirror which I broke on Drill Road by sliding into a tree. Fitted the new mirror, only to break the wafer thin glass on a tiny branch *sigh* On the lookout for some more foldable/sturdy Jeep/ATV/bicycle mirrors...and not some on 10 inch stalks
  12. I agree about the hill. I was 1st through it and didn't break through the ice. By the time I got parked up further up the trail, I'd missed all the action and the hole had appeared. I'm assuming the 6000lb Rover broke through. I'm not sure how we'd have winched Derek as he was last.
  13. Very icy Muddy Myra was fun, and great to see some new faces :) The bridge bypass was 100% ice all the way, but the spooled up Zuk took it no problem 🙂 The trail is mostly just filled in, with little opportunity to play, so we were out by 11:30!! So, I took us to the pipeline that runs from Aerotech to Fall River, where there's a small quarry to play in. I ended up having carb issues. After performing some donuts near the end of Muddy Myra, the carb started over fueling. I checked out the float and got it working again. Then we headed over to the pipeline. By the time we got to the end of the pipeline, it started over fueling again. This time so bad it wouldn't start. So after a some more tinkering with the float, I got it going enough to get me home. I've come to the conclusion that these cheap Chinese carbs are junk, so the TBI is going back on.

    6 week old alternator is only pushing out 12v and It'll run without being connected to the battery. Need to do some troubleshooting, check cables grounds etc. When I installed this replacement it was originally showing 15v. Maybe I just got a dud. But it also seems odd that this isn't the 1st time with a charging issue. So I'll likely be wheeling on the alternator on Saturday unless I can get a replacement or maybe install a Suzuki alternator from my junk pile lol.
  15. For this months club run since the ice seems to be bad everywhere, we'll be having a rip around Muddy Myra on Saturday 19 January. Leaving for the trail at 10:00am from the Tims at 75 Bell Blvd near the Airport.
